WHAT’S IN MY CAMERA BAG?
I recently received a question from a reader about how I take pictures for my blog and if there is a way he can improve his photography skills.
Good thing it’s entirely possible and this post will outline how I went from amateur to semi-decent photographer.
I first saw a big improvement after buying the right camera for my needs and mastering off-camera editing using Lightroom.
As far as the camera is concerned, I would suggest getting an entry-level DSLR camera by shooting at the common point. The difference between the two is simple: Depending on what picture you take, the lens can be lowered and exchanged with other lenses in the DSLR camera.
For starters, I was into getting a Canon Rebel T6S or Nikon D5300 (both Nikon and Canon dominate the camera industry in terms of quality and versatility).
Either camera will be more than enough for a beginner photographer but in the end, I went with Nikon because I thought the white balance worked better and the images seemed to be sharper and more detailed.
Nikon D5300 is a beautiful, compact and extremely functional camera that will meet all your needs – and then some. It really packs a punch for an entry-level camera.
Amazon has a special job going on right now where you can do this by “kit” (both body and entry-level lenses) for $ 450. See the special by clicking this link
Have you heard of Rakuten? This is a website where you will receive cash back for purchases made online. You can earn up to 5% cashback when buying from Amazon.
Signing up is completely free and the monthly or subscription fee is zero. You will also receive $ 10 to sign up. If you are interested, click here to find out more (this is basically free money!)
So if you buy a camera from Amazon using a service like Rakuten, you will get $ 32.5 back for your purchase and apply it when you buy anything that works with Walmart, Nike, Massey, Sephora and other name work with Rakuten.
What are you looking for when you buy your first camera?
- Know your image sensors. An image sensor captures the light from the image you are shooting. Nikon D5300 has a 24.2-megapixel sensor, which means it can take high-quality images on a large TV screen, which can be viewed without losing any details or for a presentation that phumkate.
Lenses, Lenses, Lenses. If you want to make sure that your camera lens can work with a variety of body without any problem.
- Manual controls are easy to use. There will come a time when you need more control over your settings (if you’re taking low-light or macro shots, for example).
- Viewfinder and display. The 5300’s display can be rotated around so you can take more interesting pictures. You’re limited only by your own creativity.
- Price. You should look for something affordable because if you are anything like me you don’t have nearly a billion dollars.
Below is our ladder, an illiterate photo of my friend Anna from Hawaii right after Heaven Hike. I just turned on the camera and separated the image a second time.
As you can see, the image was really shiny and detailed and it took less than a second to focus on the camera. I cropped a portion of the photos to show how sensitive the sensor is.
You simply cannot get it on point and shoot.
LEARNING MORE ABOUT YOUR CAMERA
What you should look for a camera that you now know more about, How do I learn about what the camera is to be used more efficiently advise. How different the shot mode, and then how to write the perfect photograph.
There are many photographers on YouTube that will explain all the settings of the D5300 (I recommend watching one of these videos: here, here and here.) If you already have a camera and would like to get a little more familiar with it, the “Tutorial” or “how to” and then the name of your camera a general Google search will show you a ton of results.
Once you’ve learned all the camera settings, you’re now ready to go out and take pictures in the world!
How to take beautiful photographs?
Lastly (and probably the hardest part of it all) is learning how to create a beautiful photograph and how you can achieve beautiful results once you hit the shutter release button.
I recommend watching the video and the tutorial. YouTube again, is the photographer of the photograph, which explains the basic composition and technique. However, many of these videos shallow in terms of what they teach.
They have failed to go deeper because of higher ticket websites photographers in the course of their money by sending traffic to YouTube, which has cost hundreds of dollars. Do not waste your time or money on it.
By signing up for Skillshare I learned everything I needed to know and then some. Skillshare you want to learn about any topic, including 30,000 in an online learning community classes. I used Skillshare for watercolor painting, photography, and skills and I set up this blog with what I learned on the site.

HOW I EDIT PHOTOS
I use Lightroom In Lightroom, you can organize your photos into different albums, create colorful presets that you can apply to all photos and export all your photos at once. I’ve been editing for 14 years of my own images and laitarumera better than that, there is no editing software 🙂
